I am grateful to the hon. Lady for her kind words about the Scottish Parliament and the Welsh Assembly- [Interruption]-and the Northern Ireland Assembly as well; I was coming to that. Like many good things, the Parliament can take time to grow on people, but I think she will find that the Scottish Government and Parliament is an institution well worth protecting, as are those of Wales and Northern Ireland.
